Great thread, most of my comments relate to Auckland, but may have some relevance here too.
I agree, the expo rocked, so any learnings are about making a more polished event for next year.
I thought we should do a survey of the retailers and a debrief of the volunteers.
I'm curious to know if the retailers reasons for exhibiting, making sales, making contacts, or just to support Real Nappy Week? I don't expect them to post here, cause I'm sure its commercially sensitive.
It would be great to have exhibitors from across the country.
We didn't end up with a breastfeeding/feeding/nappy changing/quiet space. There were a few chairs by the video, but it wasn't very zen.
I think not having a set demo time worked, it was quite casual and the volunteers were knowledgeable.
We need to invest in a banner to go in the venue to promote tnn and to brand the expo as a tnn event.

I asked people and K8ylou asked heaps of people too. The article in the central leader, antenatal classes, the mention on 1ZB, and someone mentioned the Littlies magazine, were the ones I heard.
I was speaking to someone who arrived just before 10am because they thought the expo would be like the Parent and Child show, y'know with heaps of queuing and crowds! Maybe we thats what we need to aspire to next year
Hopefully next year we can pull off a big public nappicino.
